Tough Times

9 x 12 oil on canvas board

Since I have been out of town for most of this week, I haven't had a chance to paint so I am posting another painting I did last year.  I saw this man when we exited the interstate and pulled into a convenience store.  He was sitting on the curb with his mat and duffle bag and had a blank look on his face.   The reference photo was taken a few years ago during the height of the recession and he appeared to be homeless - so sad.   The cropping on the photo isn't very good, there is actually more of his foot and duffle bag in the painting and the painting is not so fuzzy as this.   As you can see I still hadn't figured out how to remove the date stamp on my camera either.  I'm a slow learn!!!!
